I want to start off this summary by apologizing to you all for being so late with this summary, and the January 30th MetaZoo Hour summary as well. Going forward, I will do my best to get these hours summarized the day of, or the day after at the very latest. That being said, I also got the January 30th summary done this morning, but I will publish that one in 4-to-6 hours from now so as to not confuse anyone or annoy those who are signed up to the MetaZoo HQ push notifications.
On Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 10:02am EST, MetaZoo Games founder Michael Waddell started up another MetaZoo Hour on the official MetaZoo Discord server.
There were a total of 130 MetaZoo related questions & 9 personal/unrelated questions that were asked by members of the MetaZoo Discord community, and the answers all came directly from Michael Waddell himself; unless otherwise stated.
As always, we’ll start off with the MetaZoo-related questions first, in the order that they were received, and then move onto the personal questions afterward. Try searching for things such as “Wilderness,” “Valentines” or “NFT” to narrow-down the results. It all works dynamically. 🙂
Michael Waddell at 10:02am EST:

Wilderness 1st edition special items will be in target and walmart, but we will likely try to keep it to 2nd edition exclusives in the future
Avoid saying it’s official
— Shared by @Chaos Crystal Enthusiast
1st edition print runs remain the same size starting with wilderness, even when we 10x our fanbase size each year
That’s the plan
I like bigfoot, cumberland dragon, snipe, etc… secret rare? hmm
Speaking of chases of Wilderness — we’ll have an entirely new setup for conventions with some cool Wilderness stuff all throughout 2022. — Stated by @Chaos Crystal Enthusiast
